Winner Winner! A Throwback Favorite for Lunch OR Dinner!

Ever craving your childhood favorite recipes? How are you revamping and making them your own, with high-quality, healthy ingredients? Today, we’re taking a trip down memory lane and inviting Janine of Fit4Janine to share one of her favorite childhood recipes using Wild Planet Albacore Wild Tuna. Can you guess what it is? We’ll give you a hint; we’d stop the world and melt with this delicious recipe!


As a foodie, I am not only trying to find the BEST eats out there, but I am also a product snob too. I LOVE to cook with the latest and greatest, as well as the cleanest, ingredients for my health and wellness goals.

I kept seeing so many foodies and food bloggers tout the brand Wild Planet Foods on their social media feeds and blogs that I had to follow suit and try it out myself. And, let’s just say, there has been no turning back! Wild Planet’s Wild Albacore Wild Tuna is sustainably pole and line caught, which means it is 100% REAL tuna. I always get the kind that is in water, and with “no salt added,” but, again, that is my preference.

With Wild Planet Foods Albacore Tuna stacked on my shelves, “tuna salad” has become a weekly staple in my lunch rotation over the past few months. While it is easy to become a creature of habit with my “usual,” I decided to change it up a bit and give my tuna a little more “oomph.”

I had this “idea” of re-creating one of my childhood food memories – the “Tuna Melt.” I guess I am feeling a little nostalgic these days. Honestly, it’s not something that I had a lot, but it is something I would eat when I was at my cousin’s house. We always knew it was a special day when we saw the tomato and cheese coming out with the tuna accouterments! 🙂

And, let’s just say, nothing warms your heart and soul more than a satisfying, “melt-in-your-mouth” kind of meal.

With an avocado-based mayonnaise and hormone-free sliced cheese all sitting on top of a yummy gluten and grain-free bread, this recipe is sure to be FIT4You!
